Watch James Carville, Democratic strategist and CNN contributor, and Terry Jeffrey, Editor-at-Large of Human Events, as they spar over the liberal advocacy group MoveOn.org, the political ad wars, and the war in Iraq.

    The slogans change, the generals are shuffled in and out with new "plans" which just stall for time, but essentially we are left with the old "stay the course" until every republican is voted out in '08.

    The MoveOn.org ad is accurate. It's the kind of information that news organizations should present whenever nonsensical hype about future troop reductions are presented.

    We will just come full circle back to 2006 in 2008. Maybe another thousand American dead by next year, a few thousand lost legs, arms, eyes or other body parts.

    It's so our Republican president can "save face", not admit his error, and pass this awful mess onto the next administration.

    Their hold on power and lack of shame is repulsive. In some civilized democracies, in Japan or Europe, they resign for far less disasterous mistakes.

    When is CNN going to get over the "The Best Political Team on Television." Gimme a break, all of the analysts are biased and to be quite honest, it's forced me to watch "Fox News" and MSNBC more. I hate to even say that, but it's true. Where are the independent journalists these days? Any young Bob Woodward's willing to crack the MSM bias and expose the connections? The truth in journalism this election cycle is embarrassing to me as an American.

    The poltiical power of MoveOn.org is undeniable, using the power of the Internet and their seat at the table of Dmeocratic leadership to be a progressive opinion leader. MoveOn volunteers are better educated and more politically savvy than voters generally, and aren't shy about using their advantages to push for change.

    DC needs to learn the difference between allegation and fact. It really
    wouldn't hurt to learn to spell correctly, should one wish to be taken seriously. mb

    I am tired of hearing what might happen if we leave. These people have been fighting each other for thousands of years. They will continue no matter if we are there or not. The fact is we should NEVER HAVE GONE THERE! As for draft dodgers, Bush is the worst of them all. We spent all that money to train him as a pilot so he fly around the US working on political camapins.

    Why we can't leave has nothing to do with Iraq itself but with what the rest of the world and later emerging threats will think of our powerlessness. This is just one reason why Bush/Rove/Cheney should have looked past the short term political advantage to their party and never have invaded.
